Sleepwalking

Sleepwalking refers to a state of semi-consciousness in which the sleeping individual may sit up, move around and do things that they will not remember when awake. This occurs during the slow, deep sleep phase in the first hours after falling asleep.

Sleepwalking may affect up to 15% of children 5 to 12 years old.

Around 2% of adults are also affected by sleepwalking, but the phenomenon tends to become rarer with age.

Factors that increase the risk of experiencing sleepwalking episodes are:

  • Stress and anxiety;
  • Drug and alcohol use;
  • Excessive intense physical activity before bed;
  • Night-time respiratory disorders;
  • Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS);
  • Internal and external stimuli (noise, full bladder, fever, etc.).
